The Crichton Trust is delighted to be opening the doors to the Crichton Memorial Church and Crichton Central on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th September from 11am to 3pm as part of Doors Open Days 2021.
THE CRICHTON MEMORIAL CHURCH: The Crichton Memorial Church is stunning inside and out and is a fitting memorial to Elizabeth Crichton. You can read more about the church in the latest issue of The Crichton Magazine. The Crichton Magazine including features about the stained glass window and the organ.
CRICHTON CENTRAL is our new cafe and co-working space (formerly Fresco cafe in the Criffel View building). Following months of refurbishment, Crichton Central is now open to the public for coffee, lunches and small events with seating outside on the lawn, under the terrace or inside in the cafe and lounge. New meeting rooms, co-working spaces and radio studio are also available with plans to open in the Autumn (pending the status of Covid and advice re working practices). It is a stunning transformation and certainly worth a visit! Find out more on the Crichton Central website.
